Patient Comments (6)

For 3 years n 5 rhuemetologists no one knew what was wrong with me. Doctors treated me like I'm going and stupid. After seeing Dr Shapiro he finally gave me an answer. First visit he knew I had scleroderma. To wait 3 years n finally get an answer feels so at peace. So many doctors made me feel...more

A renaissance man and great diagnostician. Caring and knowledgeable... Keeps up with current medicine and carefully explores options, well beyond his specialty. As close to a model for a gentleman and a scholar as you'll find!
